Protect Civil Marriage

Let’s Keep Your Church Laws OFF OUR Constitution and Civil Laws!

Sign the petition to President Obama

There have always been Gay people serving their country!  The should be able to serve without being discriminated.  Other in the military don’t care if there comrade is Gay, the problem is the people in the Pentagon.  It’s a waste of tax payer dollars to be discharging good educated soldiers from doing their duty.   “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is just silly childish rule!

Courage Campaign | Sign the petition to President Obama

Keep your promise, President Obama
Tell the President to end the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and not to fire Lt. Dan Choi

Lt. Dan Choi, from Orange County, California, is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and an Iraq War veteran. Last March he went on Rachel Maddow’s show and spoke three truthful words: “I am gay.”

As a result Lt. Choi received a letter from the Army on April 23 discharging him for violating the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. He told Rachel Maddow the letter was “a slap in the face” to himself and the soldiers he as commanded and served with over the past decade.

Lt. Choi is fighting to stay in the military and ensure that no other soldier is ever again discharged as a result of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The Courage Campaign and CREDO Mobile are joining his effort to secure equality in our armed forces.

President Obama did not create this policy. But he now has the opportunity to keep his promise and allow gay and lesbian soldiers to serve openly in the military. It’s the right thing to do — for justice and for national security.
104,722 people (as of Monday, May 18) have signed the following petition to President Obama from the Courage Campaign and CREDO Mobile. Please add your name now:

“Don’t step on anyone’s joy!” Something the opposing party should learn!

This is such joyous news!  Those families must be very happy because civil marriage affects that family unit, not yours!

If religion would just keep their religious marriages to their particular congregations, we wouldn’t be having this problem with our civil marriages laws, which BTW affect every ones financial planning.

Excuses, they put out, like it being taught in school are bogus lies!  When I went to school I was never taught anything about any marriage, neither “straight” or Gay!  Those are issues that are private and between the couple, and their families and friends.  It should be a joyous occasion for those families, so lets just keep it that way.

When I was in nursing school an instructor said, “Don’t step on anyone’s joy!”  That is something people should think about, and I think they have a lot to learn about love and respect for other people, and what lover really is, NOT some kind of shallowness taught out of dogma.

Vote caps decade-long gay marriage fight in Conn.

A decade-long battle for marriage equality in Connecticut ended when the General Assembly voted to update the state’s marriage laws to conform with a landmark court ruling allowing gay and lesbian couples to tie the knot.

“It feels so good. It really does feel like the book is closing,” said Anne Stanback, president of Love Makes a Family, a gay-rights group that has led the fight for same-sex marriage in the state.

A spokesman for Gov. M. Jodi Rell said she will sign the bill, which passed 28-7 in the Senate and 100-44 in the House of Representatives late Wednesday, into law. While Rell, a Republican, signed the state’s 2005 civil unions law, she has said she believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

The bill comes six months after the State Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that same-sex couples have the right to wed in Connecticut, rather than accept the civil union law designed to give them the same rights as married couples. [read more]
